    Warm Cauliflower & Lentil Salad

    This dish was made on a whim. Honestly, I didn’t know what I initially set out to make. I knew that I wanted the meal to be warm, savory, fresh, and easy. The longest steps in the whole process were roasting the cauliflower + mushrooms and simmering the lentils. It all came together in under 45 minutes! I love to use items such as lentils because you can really stretch your meals throughout the week. The same goes for quinoa, rice, farro, etc – which we always have on hand. I think that’s the beauty of knowing how flavors go together and having a basic understanding of how to cook certain items.…

    Asparagus & Farro Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette 

    Spring was here and now it seems to be . . . missing? Why is it March and snowing? Karma. That’s why. Ever since I moved to North Carolina from Ohio 10 years ago, I’ve been bragging about the warm and sunny NC weather. Our winters are short. Our Springs are perfect. But recently we’ve been down in the snow trenches with Ohio. However, that hasn’t stopped us from celebrating Spring through food. Our Farmers’ market has inspired me to crank out Spring dishes for my family. I hope this inspires you to do the same! This Asparagus & Farro Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette is easy and encapsulates everything I love about…

    Market Haul: Asparagus

    You know how fashion bloggers show off their “fashion hauls”? Going through piece-by-piece all the while explaining why they bought an item and how they’re going to style those pieces? (I feel weird even knowing what a “Fashion Haul” is to be honest…) Then all of a sudden you’re out shopping, filled with excitement with buying whatever you just saw? I want you to be that excited about buying FOOD. FOOD IS FUN. GOOD FOOD IS GOOD FOR YOU! But, just like fashion, a lot of people have no idea what they’re doing. So, I thought it would be fun to start doing Market Hauls. These hauls will showcase an…

    Curried Butternut Squash & Masala Chickpea Pizza

    I’m in love with curry and I don’t care who knows it! Seriously. It’s so good. It adds depth to a dish so quickly, so easily, so perfectly. We love incorporating curry into many of our dishes. I’ve been working on this Curried Butternut Squash & Masala Chickpea Pizza recipe for a while now, and I think we finally nailed it. Store bought Pizza Dough is great to have on hand and makes for a quick weeknight dinner idea. We love using Wewalka. All variations of their pizza dough turn out nicely. Adding just a bit of greek yogurt gave the pureed squash the texture it needed with an added zip in…
